Loneliness make it a thing of the past!

Loneliness - Government asks for our help

This year the government is going to deliver its National Loneliness Campaign borne out of recommendations from the Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness - a cross-party group Jo set up herself before she was killed.

What the campaign wants to break down the barriers that surround loneliness which has been proven to cause ill health, both physical and mental.

The team working on the campaign has come to U3A to ask for your help if you have experienced loneliness and have a story to share. Anyone who is willing to stand up and say, "Yes I am/was lonely. This is how it feels”. These could also be used as an offer to media outlets.

If you would like to get involved then please write a few lines on your experience and send to elizabeth.drury@u3a.org.uk

She will only pass details onto the campaign if you wish her to.

Thank you – your help is really appreciated.
